Em.. I had read that the 1 3/16 bit was for "European Style" cabinet
door hingle holes. Evidently, from your post, 35mm is the size I would
require (instead). Without a good use for the big bit, it is difficult
to justify the set price. I'll look again. Thank you for your help.
You need the metric sized bit for those absolutely.
Makes those hinges a piece of cake to install, and I just measured by
hand with a tape measure and a square for the offset and drilled them
with a cordless.
Only hung about five doors with mine, just around my house, but two were
eight feet tall, three hinges per door, went up flawlessly.
The system will be down for 10 days for preventive maintenance.
Not when the screws are in, but it makes the alignment of the hinge cup
plate _before_ the screw holes are drilled a good deal fussier, even
when using a Vix bit.
Not a big deal when doing one or two, but on three dozen plus doors it
slows the process down, inexcusable when a precise fit is as close as
using the correct tool to start with.
The more you do, the more you appreciate the details .. and attention to
detail _is_ the difference between mediocrity and supremacy.

Brad points are mandatory, but don't expect them to replace the smaller
Forstners for all jobs. Drilling table top clips comes immediately to
mind, where a 5/8" Forstner shines:
